The 2012 Summer Olympics is just about to begin, and we are so excited to see the five female gymnasts on the U.S. Olympic Team compete. While these girls are remarkably strong and determined, we love how they also know how to flaunt their personalities on the gym floor. Case in point: The Olympic Trials earlier this month, where each showed off bright, glittering patriotic leotards. Though they’ll be wearing identical uniforms at the London games—go Team USA!—take a moment to see their star quality shine through, leotard-style, in the gallery. Then, tune in to NBC this Friday at 7:30 pm/ET to watch the Opening Ceremony.

While Carly Rae Jepsen’s breakout hit “Call Me Maybe” has become the definitive song of summer 2012, we’re calling her makeup from the Teen Choice Awards just plain gorgeous. We love how her graphic smoky eye is balanced by her clean, dewy complexion. “I always love for skin to glow! The best way to achieve that is to start with good skin prep,” said the star’s makeup artist Desirae Cherman, who spritzed Jepsen’s face with Jurlique Lavender Hydrating Mist. The product moisturizes and adds balance to the skin, creating a smooth surface to apply foundation. Pick up the mist for $31 at jurlique.com and see more Daily Beauty Tips in our gallery!
